City Art Centre

An impressive art gallery in Edinburgh City Centre.

City Art Centre

A huge building boasting nine floors of excellent exhibitions and intriguing collections, The City Art Centre used to be part of The Scotsman newspaper buildings. Since its conversion in 1980 it has hosted everything from Science Festival events to a Star Wars exhibition.

As well as featuring a great variety of work, from recognised collections of Scottish art to new work from local or international artists, it also arranges educational workshop and lecture programs for individual groups and schools. Their shop sells locally crafted jewellery and books, and the cafe is a pleasant place to kick back after a hard day’s wandering.
